Angie, I quickly copied off the mittens pattern for both my DGD, and the new one due in August. Thank you!

I just thought I'd mention that as cute as it is I don't think a scarf for a very young child is a good idea. Scarves can get caught on things very easily and babies and small children can't free themselves or even alert you. I felt this was important enough to tell you my thoughts.

Good thought, Jan! A keyhole scarf could cinch up and become a 'noose'. The mother would need to keep a close watch on her baby with any scarf around the neck, which I'm sure she will do! Babies like to tug on anything they get their little mitts on! Even pacifiers attached to a cord hanging around the neck to prevent the pacifier falling onto the floor. My daughter's have done that. I wasn't smart enough. I just carried lots of spares! But now that I think about it, I was smarter than I realized.

It's hard to anticipate all the perils a baby or toddler can fall into!
But we try, don't we! I sometimes wonder how I managed to raise 5! Oy.

Thanks Jan for mentioning that. When I looked at the picture I thought, in this order;
WHAT an adorable Baby.
WHAT a cute set .
WHAT are they doing putting a scarf around that baby's neck!!

So I agree it's all so cute but please, do away with the scarf!

You know, I've got 3 young kids. I'm such a stickler for safety. It never even occurred to me, the dangers of a scarf on a baby. Isn't that terrible?! Thank you so much for the words of warning, and for being kind about it instead of jumping down my throat. I haven't given it yet, so I'll remove the scarf.

I'll have that yarn, plus I've got about a 1/2 skien of it left... any ideas on something else I can put with it? A small toy, maybe?

I got some cute photos out of it at least!

That little baby is so cute. I love the hat and mitts. A scarf for a little one scares me a little, looks like a noose. I hope it will be safe.
